It’s that time of year again, time for the gift-bearing buck to deliver all toys to a local elementary school. The elementary being chosen this year for gift receiving is Deerfield Park Elementary.
Mr. Pizzo is the adviser for the Toy Collection and also a club sponsor for the Academy of Finances, which sponsors this annual toy drive. His aspiration for the Drive is run for the purpose of helping and building relationships in the community and students by giving the toys to children age 5 and above. For students, the toys can be dropped off in participating teachers’ classrooms inside decorative boxes.
There are requirements for the toys such as: Must be new, unwrapped toys and hold a value of around $10.
Few example of donated toys approved:
• Barbie Dolls
• Remote Controlled Car
• Sports Ball
• Age Appropriate Board Games
• Action Figure
The students and community members are also given the opportunity to earn service hours for the toys being brought in. For the students to receive service hours the teacher can send the student to Mr. Pizzo’s room in 225. The toys are then donated to the students at Deerfield Park Elementary. The collection of toys will end on Friday, December 15th. For more information see Mr. Pizzo in room 225. This toy drive has been going on for sixteen years since Mr. Pizzo has taught at Deerfield Beach high school and will hopefully continue.
